Why breast milk is so much better. I so hate pumping. Hate hate hate. I need to get over it, because I have 7 more months of it.

I actually like pumping...I'm always amused to see the milk squirting out!

Also, a comparison chart!

Thanks! I think I would just rather be nursing my baby!

HUGS! I hate pumping and have never had to do it for any extended amount of time (just a few days for a milk blister and then a really deep bite...stinker). Those of you who pump daily or exclusively really have my admiration!

I hate hate hate pumping too. I pumped for both my kids from 3 months until 12 months, as well as nursing them in the mornings, evenings, and weekends. You didn't say if you were exclusively pumping or just pumping while at work, but you're doing a great thing for your baby! For me, cost was a huge factor. I did NOT want to pay for formula! But the health benefits for both mom and baby are huge as well. And formula smells bad, lol. Is that a good list? Trying to help! :)

I'm just pumping at work. I have had to supplement with some formula the past two days. It makes me sad, but I can't drive myself insane.
